Tanning Beds for Sale
Ranging in price from a $150 to $50,000, tanning beds are available in a vast array of styles for home and commercial use. The most common style is the horizontal bed, followed by the vertical bed or tanning booth. New technological advances are improving these two styles to make them more portable, roomier, and more temperate, as the average bed interior heats up to a hundred degrees Fahrenheit when in use.
A third style becoming more and more common, the canopy-style bed moves on a hydraulic arm to accommodate your tanning needs while you kick back in your favorite chair. Finally, there are the solariums, which are small tanning lamps that tan portions of your body at a time. As always, when browsing tanning beds for sale, opt for those that utilize low UVB-to-UVA ratio lamps, and preferably high-pressure lamps, to minimize UV harm to your skin.
No matter what you're looking for, whether for home or salon, you'll probably find it, as there are hundreds, if not thousands, of particular makes and models of tanning beds for sale.

Wolff Tanning Beds
Wolff tanning beds are beds that, while manufactured by other companies, use Wolff lamp and reflector technologies. Wolf is commonly considered the industry standard for quality and safety. The name refers to German scientist Friedrich Wolff, who was studying the effects of UV light on athletes when he noticed an interesting effect: tan skin. He knew he had hit the jackpot, and so brought his lamp and reflector technologies to the United States in 1978. He has retained the patent on his systems throughout the entire tanning boom, and Wolff equipment is still used in all the leading tanning beds.
